Mishkins, Covent Garden
I know know, your all thinking, “what the hell is he doing bleating on about places in London for”. Well I do love Liverpool, but sometimes there is noting better than a good bit of food tourism, which in my case means walking round London stuffing my face. So should any of you venture south sometime soon, I thought I would be able to help with a few idea should you require some light refreshments.
I just had a fantastic meal at Mishkins, where amongst other things I promised the quite lovely staff that I wouldn’t blog about their place. Clearly that was a big fat lie, as here it is bold as brass on the screen in front of you. Service was brilliant, really friendly and I spent a good hour sitting at the bar chatting to the staff about restaurants, baking bread and food bloggers. For relaxed friendly ambiance it was as good as it gets, especially because I was on my own, it has to go down as one of the best restaurants experiences I’ve had in a long time. Just don’t tell them their Ruben sandwich isn’t quite right, you’ll soon be shoved out the door.
The food was top notch also, great pickled herring with beets tartar, sharp zingy and full of flavour, and due to its rather healthy feel, it mainly consisting of fish and vegetables, I didn’t feel bad ordering a massive pudding. In this case a banana fosters, which is the classic, and brilliant, combination of rum, caramel, banana and vanilla ice-crea
If you live in London please visit Mishkins, if you don’t live in London go and visit it anyway you won’t be disappointed.
